Bug Problem executing a script

The script has permissions to execute.
Still the nohup command returns error with 'No such file or directory'

Any sugggestions:

[root@linuxserver /opt/app/server]
$ nohup ./ &

$ nohup: appending output to `nohup.out'
nohup: cannot run command `./': No such file or directory


[root@linuxserver /opt/app/server]
$ ls -lat
total 144
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Feb 11 14:33 .
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 420 Feb 11 14:32
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 81 Feb 11 14:29

try this

$ nohup ./ >> OUTFILE.txt &


$ nohup sh >> OUTFILE.txt &

always redirect the output of nohup in a file.

No Friend , if you will not redirect the output of nohup file it will automatically redirect nohup.out file.

See below thing.

nohup ./time.ksh &
[1] 880924
$ Sending nohup output to nohup.out.

Check first line of the script file Smilie

If it is:
return 0;

Then it is quite possible that you don't have this binary to execute it.
In this case - system is not able to execute the file. Results will be as in your case.
